Netflix revealed today that the third season of its historical series The Crown is set to premiere on November 17.
The show follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip. Claire Foy and Matt Smith played the royal couple in the series’ first two seasons. Today, we learned that those roles will be taken over by Olivia Colman (The Favourite, Broadchurch) and Tobias Menzies (Game of Thrones, Outlander).
The third season will cover the period from 1964 to 1976 and will show the two terms of Harold Wilson as prime minister. The show will come back for a fourth season and will introduce Margaret Thatcher and Diana Spencer.
